    Hi guys,

    As I had stated in Jeff Rader's thread , I was looking for a Fender P-Bass.

    Thanks zombywoof5050 and gfab333, I took a few time to check MIJ Fender basses on Ishimashi website, and you know what ? I fell in love with this beauty...

    Many musicians I know often say that MIJ Fender's are at least as good as MIA ones, and often better... Don't know whether it is perfectly true, but I know MIJ's have a solid reputation.

    For less than the price of an MIM Standard, I have an MIJ one (w/US pickup - supposingly the vintage one). The order has been placed this evening, the bass should be here within a week... :)
     
  2. Sweeeeeettttttt bass Jean!

    All the MIJ`s I`ve seen or played have been solid and well made axes.Great color too.Love the classic white(arctic?) w/ black picguard.

    Congrats! :)

    Usul,

    This finish is called olympic white. As far as I remember, it is a typically 70's finish, which is normal since this bass is a reissue of the 70's model.

    I also love the black pickguard on white body. In fact, that's what made me fall in love...

    Thanks,

    It's amazing how they can get it to your door in a week from Japan, but they do. What's more amazing is how good they are. I hope you like yours as much as I like mine. When you get it, please tell us how you like it, and don't forget the pics!
